New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who chose to be in the front row for designer Gaurav Gupta at the ongoing Synergy1 Delhi Couture Week (DCW), feels that Bollywood celebrities are better off sitting in the front row rather than walking the ramp.
“We chose not to walk for the designer because we feel that fashion show is all about clothes and designer’s creativity and it’s better to let the garments do the talking rather than Bollywood celebrities stealing the limelight as they walk the ramp,” said the Sri Lankan beauty, who was seen sporting Gaurav Gupta’s grey net sari with single shoulder blouse.
The designer presented a collection inspired by enchanted forest and showcased garments which had lots of pleats, drapes and ruffles.
The silhouettes were a mix of sari inspired gowns and ghagaras in the hues of creme, pink, gold, copper, yellow, green and turquoise. The fabrics were mostly net, chiffons, georgettes and tulles.
“The collection was inspired by enchanted forest and I tried to create a fantasy world with surrealism depicting lot of femininity and elegance. I have presented a classic collection in modern look,” said Gaurav.
Also present in the front row was actor Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shradha Kapoor, who looked elegant in a black and red gown with neatly tied up hair.
